Welcome to Little Cottage Link Party #90 and Happy President’s Day! I started a “Bully Jar” in our house a few weeks ago. If someone says something really rude, they have to put a dollar in the jar. I promised to take everyone to lunch if there are less than $5 in the jar by tomorrow. Right now the jar has $4 in it. Hopefully we can celebrate and eat lunch at a restaurant tomorrow instead of doing school!
Last week I painted a coastal cottage on a 16″ by 20″ wood panel. I think I like painting on wood panels more than canvas. If wood panels were good enough for the Masters, then they are good enough for me. Drop into my post to read the inspiration behind my painting, if you have the time.
On with the Party
The Little Cottage Link Party is open from Monday, 9am EST, through Thursday, 9am EST (I’m leaving the party open a day longer this year). My goal for this link party is to help myself and others thrive in the home. I’ve spent the last two decades raising five homeschooled children in a beautiful little cottage in the South Carolina Lowcountry. In my opinion, the home is the most important place on earth. It doesn’t matter if you’re married, single, empty-nesting, or raising a large family-your home can still be a refreshing oasis of love and beauty to those who enter.
Time for the Features!
Michelle’s rustic DIY Valentine’s frame was upcycled from a thrift store frame holding a punched-tin horse. Don’t you just love simple, inexpensive holiday decorations ideas?
Linda’s wreath is probably even prettier in person because each heart is made with felt. Felt and wool really give craft projects that extra special something!
Beth placed a double snowflake she bought from Etsy onto a snowflake cake stand to make a majestic centerpiece for her winter tablescape. I love blue and white for winter.
Amy’s laundry signs are so well-constructed. She used a paint pen to adorn the 11″ by 14″ canvas frames, then her husband built a gorgeous frame for each one.
The layers and textures in Anita’s wall art are easy on the eyes. I just love the detail she puts into her projects.
Cindy’s apple pie cake looks like the perfect cross between apple pie and a cinnamon roll. I would love to have a piece to go with my coffee right now.
